Devotion: Recognize those sent by Him

5

John 1:10-12 NHEB “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, but the world did not recognize him. He came to his own, and those who were his own did not receive him. But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name.”

Jesus, the Saviour whom the whole world had been waiting for came, but they did not recognise Him. Some even up to now do not believe that He is the one that came.

This is because He didnt look like what they expected in their minds.

God’s word.

Sometimes people and things God brings in our life do not come as we expected. They may not packaged as we might have wanted, but we need to accept them.

It is important to be led by the Spirit to discern the things that are given to us. Some of them might look undesirable,foolish, and insignificant to our natural senses.

1Cor 2:12,14 NHEB “ But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God…Now the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Fasting and prayer especially in spirit will assist you to raise your spiritual antenna to sense and accept spiritual things easily.

The Bible talks about David that he had mighty men who assisted him during his reign.They fought battles and won them. However when they were coming to him, they were not mighty men but were some insignificant people with lots of trouble and debts to settle. David never turned them back. He just trained them and they moved from ZEROs to HEROs.

1 Sam 22:2 “All those who were in trouble or owed someone money or were discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. He had about four hundred men with him.”
